Increased Fuel Efficiency. When your car is out of alignment, your wheels don’t work together they way they should. Because of this, your vehicle’s engine has to work a lot harder to propel you forward, and this reduces your fuel efficiency.
Reduction in Repairs. Driving with bad alignment causes the parts in your car to wear unevenly and prematurely. Each time you hit a pothole or bump in the road, your steering and suspension systems take a hit. When your tires aren’t helping evenly with the impact, certain areas of these systems take the hit harder than others, causing them to break down sooner than they should. If they break down completely, you can be faced with an expensive auto repair service that could have been prevented.
Smoother Driving. When your car’s wheel alignment is off you will usually notice that even with your steering wheel held straight, your car drifts slightly to the right or the left. Having to adjust your steering to compensate for bad alignment is inefficient and dangerous.
Increase the Life of Your Tires. Last but not least, your tires. Your tires are an expensive and important part that wears out much faster when you don’t get regular wheel alignments. When you align your tires, and they are working together, you won’t have to buy new tires sooner than necessary.
It is recommended that alignment be checked once a year.
